Internet privacy is something I think we take for granted.
For the most part, much of the web is free, especially Google and Facebook services. If we take a moment and think about, though, why would Google and Facebook spend all that money to serve millions for a few sidebar ads?
They want your data.
Here’s a closer look at just how unprivate the Internet really is:
Video games and video game culture has come a long way since Super Mario Bros.
Did you know that:
“A nationally representative study found that the average American 8-to-18 years old play video games for 13.2 hours per week.”
And video games aren’t “just for kids,” anymore, as plenty of adults are in on the action. So how can the Church tap into this gaming culture?

I’ve had two Google Adsense ads on my blog Youth Leaders Academy for ages. They don’t bring in a lot of money, but they do contribute to covering the costs of my blog. I’d been thinking about getting rid of them and choosing some more ‘desirable’ ads myself, when suddenly I got a notice via email.
My account was being blocked by Google Adsense.
It was a short, standard email that didn’t give any reason why I was blocked, except for this generic ‘invalid activity’. So I searched online (yes, using Google – the irony!) and discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was blocked by far. It seems Google Adsense blocks sites on a regular basis and never, ever explains why.
